Finding Area Rugs For Sale to go with Music Decor

Finding Cool Rugs on Sale

If you find exactly what you want on your first attempt, consider yourself lucky.  When you search for rugs to go with your home decor, be flexible.  You will know when you see an item if it will go with your color scheme and the theme you want.

Think about the best places to look.  Your local stores may have rugs on sale.  You may also want to search online.  Some stores may offer area rugs with free shipping.

Where can You Use Area Rugs

Think about your home.  Do you need bathroom rugs, children's rugs, or perhaps kitchen rugs in front of your sink, stove, or in front of your washer-dryer where you stand?  What about inside your entry door?  Do you have hallways or high traffic areas where runners would be a nice fit?

Don't forget your living room, music room or family room.  These rooms might be large enough to accommodate 8 x 10 area music rugs or even 9 x 12 area rugs.  They could be placed in the center of your conversation area, perhaps surrounded by a sofa on one side, a loveseat on another, and a couple of easy chairs on the third side.  Other ideas might be to put a smaller rug, such as a piano pedal pad, where you put your feet when playing the piano, or place a short runner in front of the TV or home entertainment center.  Place them under your coffee table or in front of your favorite chair.

What about bedroom rugs?  Your feet would love the soft touch of a rug when they touch the floor as you get out of bed in the morning. 

If you find some really cool rugs in your favorite theme, think about using them as wall art.  Display them over the head of your bed or if you have a music theme, convert them to music wall art to go with your music decor.

Determine approximate dimensions for the areas where you want to place area rugs.

Do You have a Music Themed Room or other Special Theme 

As an example, let's say you love music decor, so it seems logical that you might have a music theme where you could use music rugs; These might include piano rugs, guitar rugs, music learning rugs, or similar that would make your music themed room sing.  Along with a musical theme, color and design can play a very important part.  Identify which colors will blend with existing colors or add a needed accent. 

Striped rugs might be just the design you are looking for.  Black and white rugs could have one stripe of a musical keyboard flowing through them giving the effect of a river with varying widths and flowing in a random design.  Speaking of striped rugs, what about a black silhouette of a guitar on a bed of multi-colored blue random flowing stripes.  Striped rugs can have a creative design or they might be just plain stripes.

A black and white rug might also be a runner with piano keys - a great fit for a hallway.  But if you can find a black and white rug in a short length, it could also be framed and used as music wall art. 
Actually, any smaller rug could be hung and used as wall art.

Color is important too.    Musical area rugs can usually be found in a variety of colors and sizes. Perhaps you are gathering ideas for a music themed room and prefer music area rugs with earth tones or more mellow tones with a little green mixed in while displaying piano keys, musical instruments, music stand and music symbols in a music instruments novelty rug. 

You may have a totally different theme, but whatever it is, remember to think outside the box and be creative.  Red rugs, yellow rugs, blue rugs, black and white rugs, oval rugs, round rugs, as well as a variety of rectangular shapes are only a few of what is available when you look at music area rugs for sale.

Jute Rug, Polypropylene Rugs, Olefin, and Other

When you are looking for area rugs for sale, look at what it is made of, what the backing is, and how to care for it.

If you find descriptions that say "power-loomed from durable, color-fast polypropylene", these would be considered Polypropylene rugs.  If a description says "woven 100% olefin with jute backing", this could be considered a Jute rug.  Olefin is a strong, colorfast, and stain-resistant synthetic that has a wool-like feel.

Some may have anti-static protection, soil and stain protection, and even come with a warranty.

These are only a few of the terms you may find.  The important thing to remember here is to read and be informed of what you are buying.  Make sure it will work for you.


You can find cool rugs for sale in a music theme as well as many other themes.  Know how you intend to use them and where you will place them.  Determine the dimensions you need and identify colors you want.  You will know when you find things you like.
